Children’s Books on Wheels (CBOW) is a 501(c)(3)
non-profit mobile literacy organization established in 2004.

The mission is to promote reading by providing books, educational literature, and community resources to Pre-K through 12th grade students and their families in rural communities and urban cities.

This year alone over 5,000 books have been donated to children,
churches, other non-profits, civic groups, including the
YMCA After school and Summer Programs.

We Believe in Learning

Our goal is to provide educational and community resources to the diverse population that we serve. CBOW is located at the Sleepy Hollow Multi-Purpose Building, in a rural part of Montgomery County, Texas, in the Tamina community, east of the Woodlands, a low income community.

75% of the population
served by CBOW is at or below the poverty level.

Children's Books on Wheels always gives me something to look forward to after school everyday! Reading often has helped me become a better reader, and makes it easier to understand more of the things that I learn at school.
